Our aim at Buckinghamshire New University is to produce midwives that at the point of registration are not only safe and effective, but compassionate and skilled autonomous practitioners, with advocacy at the heart of practice.
You’ll learn from our experienced lecturers and technicians using state-of-the-art simulation facilities, coupled with time out on clinical placement. This combined learning approach of theory and practice will prepare you to help mothers and babies through the vulnerable times in their lives.
Why study this subject?
Did you know that 615,557 babies were born in the UK in 2020? (ONS)
Each birth is a unique experience for mother and baby, but midwifery is about so much more than just delivering babies. It is about the professional care of mothers – before, during, and after the birth of their child; helping to keep them safe and comfortable during this intimate and life-changing experience.
There is a real demand for midwives now in hospitals around the country. If you have the compassion, care and courage needed, a degree in midwifery will teach you everything you need to know to kickstart your career.
To support your studies, the UK Government are continuing to provide all midwifery students with a payment of at least £5,000 a year which will not need to be paid back. Find out more about the NHS Learning Support Fund.
Once you graduate from this course, you’ll be able to register as a midwife with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC), which enables you to practice in the UK.
